Anne Marie McConnell is beautiful, mysterious and deadly. An unlikely combination for a woman raised by the Sisters of Charity in a small Northern California town.
But once the kindly nuns realized that their ward, orphaned after her grandfather’s murder, was dangerously unstable they protected the young girl by securing her in their monastery.
Anne Marie is also clever and inventive, traits that come in handy as she makes good an escape to return to her empty farmhouse where she knows a great deal of money awaits, hidden away by the grandmother who betrayed her.
With ample funds and a confused notion of the outside world Anne Marie sets out to cross the Mexican border. She soon becomes involved in a series of travel adventures that turn deadly as she leaves a trail of dead bodies – mostly handsome young men – in her wake.
